Learning Statement

Posted on September 29, 2009

I am in my first semester of the M.ET. program at Boise State Univeristy. At this point, I have yet to focus conclusively on exactly what my interests are within the broader field of educational technology. I am looking forward to this experience, and embarking on a very new and very exciting journey of personal and professional growth. I am particularly interested in using multimedia to improve education and training in adults, as well as presenting information via the internet.
